The Chicago Bears will play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football in a huge clash in the NFC. These two teams come into Week 16 at the top of their respective divisions, but they both still have a lot of work still to do to confirm themselves as title winners. Tonight's game will start at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Bears come into Week 16 at the top of the NFC North division with an 8-6 record. However, both the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers are just behind and if the Bears slip up then both are waiting to snatch the division title away from them.
Meanwhile, the Eagles have done well over the past month and come into this week's schedule top of the NFC East with an 8-6 record. However, they also have the Dallas Cowboys just behind them, waiting for the Eagles to slip up so they can snatch the title away.
The Eagles have the second ranked offense in the NFL when it comes down to total yards gained per game, where they are posting an average of 414 yards per game. Also in rush they have been fantastic, and with 152.9 yards on the ground per game they are ranked 1st in the league in rush offense.
The Bears are ranked second in the NFL for total points scored per game, a category where they are recording 29 points on average per game – second to only the Denver Broncos. On pass offense they are ranked 5th in the league with 275.8 yards per game in the air on average.
Both of these teams have some star players in offense but are lacking somewhat when it comes to defense. That should ensure that this is a high scoring game, and should be action-packed for even neutral fans.
